Official currency of Russia is russian ruble. The approximate exchange rate is 30 rubles per $1.
Mostly we use cash everywhere and walk the streets with thick wallets in our bags. Maybe because of this there're a lot of street thieves in Moscow. It's not so convenient but we are accustomed. If you're in Moscow take care of your bag!
You'll have to pick out our banknotes too. The most common are banknotes of 100, 500 and 1000 rubles. For petty expenses we use 10 and 50 rubles. Also we have banknote of 5000 rubles. It's rather common as well.
